The location was ideal and very close to the local village, where we enjoyed drinks and live music in local bars. During the day, we made the short journey into Galway for shopping and also boarded the boat to Inis Mor, which is also nearby. Patsy made sure we were stocked up with peat for the fire and treated us very well. The only problem is that our stay had to end. If we can get the time off work again, we intend to revisit this cottage.
